HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : — 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

Tuesday, March 29th, we began work on Pine street, 
grading nearly the entire length. Florence street was graded 
with gravel from Red Springs. On Phillips street we grav- 
eled where needed from Main street to Chapin's residence. 
The usual spring cleaning of gutters was done, and the catch 
basins have been looked after at all times. 

On Main street we commenced where the State left off, 
raised the grade of the hollow three feet, lowered the ledge 
the same and then macadamized 1100 feet. This gives us an 
unbroken macadam road from the Reading line to Memorial 
Hall at the square. There remains about three hundred 
feet between the square and Pearson street. When this 
strip is done, there will be a continuous macadam road from 
the Lawrence line to the Reading line. Our next macadam 
was on Salem street. We began near Dr. Bricault's and put 
in 2200 feet, finishing at Porter street. This used all our 
stone and we then graveled Whittier street, Chestnut street, 
and part of Bartlet street; macadamized three hundred 
feet near Cooper's pond on Central street. 

At the hollow on Elm street near Plato Eames' house, 
three hundred feet of macadam was laid. This was paid for 
from the highway appropriation. Near D'Arcy's four hun- 
dred feet of old macadam was re-surfaced making it as good 
as new. 

The road machine was used twenty-two days in different 
parts of the town. Six hundred and fifty-five loads of gravel 
were put on the River road and the cross roads near Edward 
Boutwell's and Deacon Abbott's. 



53 

The West Parish sidewalk has been completed from 
Buchan's pit to the Williamson place and three hundred feet 
of retaining wall put in, varying from three to fifteen feet in 
depth. This was also railed. Poor street, Frye Village, has 
been graded, also Lowell street, between Edward Burtt's 
house and the Trow place, and between the Gillen place and 
the fountain. 

The sidewalk has been built to grade from Scott's on 
Summer street to Whittier street and the large trees there 
were removed. The sidewalk on Whittier street from 
Summer street to Elm street has been blocked out ready to 
gravel. Other sidewalks have been repaired where needed. 
In Abbott Village, a catch basin was put in. A new foot 
bridge, nine feet wide, was built over the Shawsheen River 
at a cost of nearly $200. Also, one on Stimson's bridge on 
Main street at a cost of $285. Mineral street has been re- 
paired so that the water which caused so much trouble in 
years past, will now find its way to the brook. 

In October, we built one hundred feet of face wall on Pine 
street, at the house of Wendell Jenkins. Mr. Jenkins re- 
ceived no land damages and the selectmen agreed to fix his 
lot satisfactory to him. This was the reason for building the 
wall. There is over $200 left from the Pine street appro- 
priation. I would recommend that this money be re-appro- 
priated for a sidewalk on the west side of Pine street. I in- 
tended to build this, but the selectmen, as well as the people 
on the new street, were anxious to have me commence on 
the new road. Work began there October tenth and the 
street was finished December tenth. Then the ground was 
frozen, the season's work finished, leaving Pine street side- 
walk unbuilt. There is also a balance of over $200 left from 
the appropriation for the new street which I would recom- 
mend that the town re-appropriate. A good deal of the 
material used there was frozen, and as this is liable to settle 
the street will need to be touched up in the spring. 

In Ballardvale, a sidewalk was built between Perry's house 



54 

and Moody's corner. In this walk there were two hundred 
feet of retaining wall and two hundred feet of railing. One 
hundred and thirty feet of rail was built on Chester street. 
The streets of Ballardvale have been kept in repair by the 
town team kept there. 

Perhaps it would not be out of place to say right here that 
this is the second year out of the six years of my service as 
highway surveyor, that I have expended the appropriations 
according to my judgment. The other four, at the annual 
town meeting, it has been designated where the macadam 
money should be expended. I say this to inform the public 
that my hands were tied mainly by vote of the town. This 
year the macadam has been placed as follows : 300fe et on 
Elm street, 2200 feet on Salem street, 1100 feet on Main 
street in the hollow, and 300 feet on Central street near 
Cooper's pond.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



In addition to the usual work of keeping the walks and 
drives of the cemetery in good order, much work has, and 
must be done, in grading and laying out the newly plotted 
addition to the cemetery. More than one hundred new lots 
are included in this new plot and they cannot be put in 
proper condition for burial purposes without the expenditure 
of time and money. Your committee therefore ask for a 
larger appropriation than has been granted in former years, 
believing that the same is necessary and must be expended 
for the purposes named. 

We therefore ask for an appropriation of $500.00 and the 
proceeds from the sale of lots for the ensuing year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The growing interest in public grounds has not been 
unappreciated in Andover. The laws of the Commonwealth 
have been changing year by year, ever tending to put larger 
obligations upon cities and towns to care for the public parks 
and other natural beauties in their midst. All this new 
legislation is but an echo of the growing public appreciation 
of the importance of maintaining such places. Ten years 
ago almost no attention was given to this work in Andover. 
The unkept places were just beginning to demand attention, 
and the work of the Village Improvement Society was taking 
its first steps. From the voluntary work of individuals, there 
has passed into public control much work that now demands 
public oversight and the expenditure of public money. 
Carmel Woods and the Common are the central points of 
interest, but the Boulders and several other like small plats 
are calling for care and money. 

The plans of the Commissioners promise results of beauty 
and great public improvement, in the securing of which it is 
realized that slow steps must be taken. The scheme for 
beautifying and rendering useful the great public grounds, 
embracing the Common, the school grounds, and the new 
playstead, is rich in promise. A part of it can be realized 
only through private subscription, but there is much of it 
which the Town must carry out through annual expenditure 
of such an amount as seems wise. 

Your Commissioners believe that at least a thousand 
dollars should be appropriated this year to advance this 
work effectively. 



93 

The Park Commissioners make the following report : 
Appropriation, 1904, $500 00 

Amount left unexpended in 1903, 50 00 

$550 00 
Amount expended, 550 50 

Overdrawn, $ 50 



There was expended in Carmel Woods $27.40 for repair- 
ing road, raking leaves, picking up dead wood, and carting 
and burning the same. We have paid for shrubs and trees 
$38.30. Edward Adams was paid $145.71 for making 
macadam path. The balance was paid for labor in grading, 
and laying down to grass a part of the Common, cutting 
bushes, carting manure, setting out trees, and caring for the 
grounds and the Boulders a part of the year.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year we have been unable to cover the 
territory as efficiently as expected owing to the appearance 
of the much dreaded browntail moth, which has done so 
much damage to trees in the surrounding towns and which 
required immediate attention.. During the early summer 
over twelve miles of roads in the outlying districts were 
made passable and in some instances it was impossible for 
two teams to pass. After the appearance of the browntail 
moth it was deemed advisable to devote the remainder of the 
appropriation, some two hundred dollars (8200.) to the sup- 
pression of the pest and accordingly that was taken up and I 
am pleased to say that more than half of the shade trees in 
the vicinity of one and one-half miles from the centre were 
thoroughly cleaned of the nests and I feel confident that 
two hundred and fifty dollars (8250.) will finish up the work 
this spring and which is available from our special appro- 
priation for that purpose. And I would ask that the owners 
of property and all tenants occupying the same will make a 
careful examination of the trees on such places for the 
browntail moth nests and have them removed at once and in 
that way help to preserve the beauty of our trees and assist 
the tree warden in this work, which must be united if it is to 
be successful. In closing I would ask that the sum of five 
hundred dollars be appropriated that the trimming of trees 
and the outlying districts may be properly attended to. 

J. H. PLAYDON, 

Tree Warden.

milk. Of these four were issued for the sale of milk in 
stores, one for the sale of skimmed milk, two for the sale of 
cream and twenty-six for peddlers. Under the statutes but 
one license is required for stores so long as the same person 
conducts business in the same place, consequently there was 
nothing collected for the store licenses which were re-issues 
from last year. There have been thirty-five samples of milk 
tested and but one of these was below the standard. Places 
for keeping milk that have been inspected were found to be 
clean and wholesome. The tests of the various samples of 
milk has shown a high standard ; no complaints have been 
received and no prosecutions made. The sum of $14.50 has 
been received for licenses.

STREET BOUNDS 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

The work on street bounds for the year of 1904 has been 
of a somewhat varied character. The general scheme of 
setting bounds has been to start at Elm Square and radiate 
in all directions doing each year what can be done with the 
appropriation made by the town. The most difficult and 
expensive work lies near the square. 

Street lines are often requested where it is almost as ex- 
pensive to run the lines on a single property as it would be to 
make a complete survey of the whole street, an effort has been 
made to satisfy all land owners making such requests. Lines 
have been given as follows : Lowell road at Win. M. Woods, 
Shawsheen road at Chas. O'Hara's, Clark road from Chester 
street to Palmer's and Summer street from Scott's to Whittier 
street. Forty- seven bounds have been set as follows : Haver- 
hill street 1, High street 10, Park street 8, Bartlet street 10, 
Pine street 10, Avon street 4 and Union street 4. Surveys 
have been made in addition to the above of Pearson and 
Essex streets and cross sections for the widening of Main 
street from Elm square to Stimson's bridge. 

High street was located to make as little encroachment 
on private property as possible and obtain a highway with a 
minimum width of fifty feet, bounds were set where no en- 
croachment would occur, there are however some points 
which are not yet settled and it will be. best to relocate the 
street lines at these points as there is no layout on record. 
It will also be desirable to relocate the lines of Essex and 
Pearson streets before placing bound stones. On the other 
streets mentioned the layout of the streets were quite easily 
located and no trouble occurred. 



113 

The work can be done somewhat cheaper if an appropri- 
ation large enough to give permanent employment to a tran- 
sitman and rodman for the summer season is made. From 
inquiries and requests made by land owners I am led to be- 
lieve that there is a general call for the permanent settlement 
of street lines, I would therefore recommend that the work 
be continued during 1905. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH. 



MEMORIAL HALL 



THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The past year has been much like other years in the quiet 
history of Memorial Hall Library. The circulation has been 
about the same, and as usual, new books have been added, 
some of them because they are of permanent value, and some 
because they represent the current literature which everyone 
wishes to see. If it were possible to secure more of the 
former class it would make the work bestowed upon the se- 
lection of books more satisfactory. 

The property continues to be in fairly good order, but 
some interior repairs will, probably, be necessary during the 
coming year. 

The one new feature, worthy of special notice, is a gift 
from the Trustees of Phillips Academy, of a portion of the in- 
come of a fund established in his life-time, by Lieut. Gover- 
nor Phillips. The object of this fund was said to be to pro- 
vide for the free circulation of religious books among the in- 
habitants of Andover. It is intended that the books pur- 
chased with this gift shall be non-sectarian, but especially 
calculated to promote moral and religious culture. They 
will be distinguished by a book-plate, indicating their in- 
debtedness to the Samuel Phillips Fund. But, with this ex- 
ception, they will not differ from other books in general cir- 
culation. 



115 

A detailed account of the administration of the past year 
will be found in the reports of the Treasurer, the Librarian, 
and the Custodian of the Cornell Art Room.

Report of the Custodian of the Cornell Art Room 

To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library : 

Gentlemen : — The report of the custodian of the Cornell 
Art Collection for the year ending Dec. 31st., 1904, is here- 
with respectfully submitted. 

The Cornell Art Gallery has been open during the year 
on 105 days. The total attendance has been 3856. Of this 
number 995 were adults and 2861 were children. This 
gives an average daily attendance of 36, higher than any 
year since the opening one, when it was 48. 

Since Oct. 15th, following the instructions of the Board, 
children have been admitted on Friday and Saturday after- 
noons only. The result has been an increased attendance of 
the older boys and girls on Saturday evenings, more orderly 
conduct, and apparent enjoyment of the privileges of the 
room. 

The addition to our collection of stereoscopic views, made 
in November, is a source of great interest to the young 
people. The 300 new views are mainly of China, Japan, 
Manchuria and the Philippine Islands, and the timely choice 
of subjects is much appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JULIA E. TWICHELL.

Copy of Mr. Draper's Letter 

Andover, December 12, 1904. 
Trustees of Punchard Free School, 

Gentlemen : — On my eighty- fifth birthday, Dec. 12, 1903, 1 gave to 
the Town of Andover the sum of one thousand dollars, the income of 
which is to be used in the interest of the Town schools. I had in mind 
alsc the Punchard Free School as a branch of the Andover schools 
which would share in this work. Accordingly, I now, on my eighty-sixth 
birthday, send you a cheque for one thousand dollars, to be safely invested 
as a permanent fund to be known as the " Draper Fund," the income 
therefrom to be expended for the interests of the school, as deemed best 
by your Board of Trustees. I would suggest as some suitable uses to 
which the income may be applied the following : — 

First : A Warren F. Draper Scholarship, to be awarded to a grad- 
uate (either boy or girl) who shall go on to an institution of learning 
higher in grade than secondary education, or that of the Punchard 
School. 

Second : Prizes in some department designated by the Trustees and 
Teachers. 

Third : The establishment of a departmental library. 

Fourth : The purchase of works of art. 

Fifth : The purchase of scientific apparatus. 

Sixth : The purchase of models for mathematical instruction. The 
income may not be used for the salary of teachers or for deficiency in 
current expenses. 

If your Board, in conference with the Selectmen or the School 
Committee of the Town, should find some object on which it seems best 
to unite the income of these two funds for the general benefit of all the 
schools, you are at liberty to do so. 

Yours respectfully, 

W. F. DRAPER.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their sixth annual 
report, embracing the eighth of the Sewer and the sixteenth 
of the Water Systems for the year ending January 10th, 
1905. 

We also transmit the accompanying report of the Super- 
intendent, conveying in detail the transactions of the year. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

No. connections made in 1904, 29 

No. connections to date, 419 

Sewer bonds issued for construction, $130,000.00 
Bonds redeemed in 1903 and 1904, 40,000.00 

Outstanding, $90,000.00 

Interest on bonds, $4005.00 

Sinking funds, $22,865.86 

. About 304 feet of sewer was laid in Abbot street, con- 
necting the two ends and completing this line from School 
to Phillips. The amount of sewage in the Phillips street 
line has increased very materially, and, although the auto- 
matic pump in this street, which forces the sewage to the 
line in School street, is inspected daily it is liable to get 
clogged from obstacles in the sewage, and may sometime 
fail to do its work. In order to avoid, if possible, any trouble 
should this occur, and the receiving tank fill, a pipe has 
been laid to carry off any overflow (should there be any) 
to several hundred feet away, where it can do no harm. It 
is expected that this will remove all trouble from this 
source. The volume of sewage in the whole system has 



more than doubled in the past four years, and another sludge 
bed to care for this increase will be needed this year. The 
filter beds suffered severely from the severe freezing last 
winter, and several hundred feet of the banks were almost 
ruined, but repairs were made as soon as possible, and with 
the favorable summer they are fairly well grassed over and 
are now in very good condition. 

WATER DEPARTMENT 

Received for water rates, $11,818.53 

Maintenance account, 16,378.96 

Services put in, 1904, 26 

Services now in use, 981 

No. of meters, 757 

Bonds issued, $230,000.00 

Bonds outstanding, $153,000.00 

Cost of system, $239,437.54 

No. of hydrants, 221 

No. of drinking fountains, 8 

Sinking funds, $14,067.41 

Interest account, $6,137.50 

Of the $230,000 worth of bonds sold to construct the 
water system, $150,000 worth, the first issue, were payable 
$5,000 each year; $50,000 were issued and sold at different 
times, and are secured by sinking funds ; and $30,000, 
issued in 1902, are payable $1,000 each year. 

Less construction work has been done in this department 
than in any year of its existence. 

Last spring an application was received from a prospective 
builder for a supply of water, with the assurance that if 
furnished a liberal quantity would be required. To do this 
the street line would have to be extended, and considerable 
expense incurred. As we had no funds for this purpose, 
and believing that water should be supplied, a contract was 
entered into whereby the party agreed to pay for the 728 
feet of 8" pipe, the extension required, and all cost for laying 



and other necessary expenses connected therewith. The 
cost for this material and labor was $716.80. The owner- 
ship of this line, like all in the system, is vested in the town, 
but the party is to be allowed 4 per cent, on the above cost. 
Yet, in no case, shall anything be allowed in excess of the 
yearly water rates. This contract may be cancelled by the 
town at any time by paying the $716.80. Should the popu- 
lation and wealth continue to increase in this part of the 
town, a high service may be necessary sometime in the 
future. 

Reference was made last year to the bad condition of the 
coal shed at the pumping station. As only a few repairs 
were made from the maintenance account, it is in no better 
condition at the present time. It seems that something 
should be done to save the building from ruin, and also to 
have some suitable place for the coal. It can hardly be 
expected that one man can tend the pump and do the firing 
unless the coal is near at hand and in good condition to 
handle, which would not be the case if it is exposed to the 
elements, especially in the winter months. 

The amount of water required has been considerably in 
excess of the normal increase that is expected from year to 
year, and may in some measure be attributed to the large 
amount required for town purposes. The introduction of 
new sanitary arrangements in several of the schools have 
required far more than under previous conditions. The 
town is now being supplied in the Osgood, West Centre, 
Bradlee, Indian Ridge, Richardson, John Dove, Stowe, and 
Punchard Schools, Memorial Hall, Annex and Heating Plant 
at John Dove Schools, Town House, two Engine Houses, 
Poor Farm, and for road rollers, road building, drain flush- 
ing, street sprinkling, two sewer pumps, eight fountains, and 
221 hydrants, which is estimated will take 13,700,000 
gallons, or nearly 10 per cent, of water pumped. 

The Water System now comprises 30.5 miles of street 
pipe, 221 hydrants, 14.1") miles service pipe, brick pumping 



6 



station r two boilers, one Deane vertical pump, one Blake 
compound duplex pump, and all necessary appurtenances, 
one coal shed, dwelling house, ice house, repair shop, store 
shed and barn, reservoir and telemeter. 

We would ask an appropriation of $ 1,200 for repairs on 
coal shed, $1,000 for construction purposes, and 16,600 for 
maintenance.

Total number of meters in use, 757. 

The pipe lines and reservoir are in good condition. The 
reservoir was cleaned and pipe lines thoroughly flushed 
in June. 

The Blake Pump needs some overhauling, portions of the 
piping at the Pumping station need renewing. The front 
and north sides of the coal shed were raised and braced early 
•in the spring so that the shed has answered the requirements 
for the year, it will be necessary to repair the west side and 
build a new platform before putting in another supply of coal. 
While it is perfectly feasible to store coal without covering 
under many conditions, it would be extremely difficult for 
one man to run the pumping station and wheel in his coal 
when it was frozen under two or three feet of snow. 

Sewers 

Three hundred and four feet of six-inch sewer was laid on 
Abbot street, completing the sewer from School to Phillips 
street. 

An overflow sewer eight inches in diameter has been put 
in from the pump house on Phillips street to an overflow 
cesspool on land of L. F. Hitchcock, Central street, the total 
length is 1122 feet. 

Thirty applications for house connections were received 
and 29 connections laid during 1904. Total number of 
applications to date, 438. 

Total number of connections to date, 419. 

Length of connections laid during 1904, 1065 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 26328 feet. 

The severe rain storms of last spring caused a serious 
washout on the high banks of beds Numbers 14 and 15, 
necessitating the replacing of about 1000 cu. yds. fill. The 
system as a whole is in good condition. I would again call 
your attention to the need of another sludge bed. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
